Carvone – Terpene Profile
Nerol plays a significant role in determining the flavor and aroma profiles of rose and palmarosaoils, in which it can be found in large quantities. Thanks to its fragrant mixed rose and citrus aroma, the terpene is a common ingredient in the fragrances industry. With enticing tastes of fresh fruit and light floral touches, Nerol is often combined with other additives to create popular fruit flavors like raspberry and red apple. The terpene is used to treat sepsis along with bacterial infections and is also effective at soothing and healing topical conditions such as acne and minor contusions.
